 "I do think that one who sees the many virtues of the most beautiful place on earth and properly appreciates it might one day be able to call themselves a Southerner...eventually." 

Your kind words of wisdom are as lovely as a Magnolia and as sweet as my tea! 
Congratulations on your acceptance and I look forward to meeting you in the fall! (assuming you choose Mississippi mud over red clay ;) )

it is admirable to strive for it, but don't think that you'll attain or be accepted as a Southern gentleman just because you go to school at Ole Miss.  I'll harden Scarlett's line to say that you do have to be born into it, just as i couldn't become a yankee regardless how long i might live in the north (though i never intend to).  when i was looking at the school, they seemed more than willing to offer assistance, so that may be a very good starting point for the apt search and yes, the campus is beautiful (as are the lovely Southern ladies).

Spoken like a true Southern gentleman...

Yeah, I had always considered Ole Miss a safe bet. I guess being out-of-state (and a borderline Yankee) didn't help.

Bless your hart.

Chicago, bless your hart...the campus is gorgeous, the people are extremely nice, the law building is lovely.  Unfortunately, sweetie, you are NOT "soon to be a southern gentleman"... this takes many years of practice (some even believe that if you aren`t born into our way of life you really can never understand it) and being from Chicago, well, that is VERY north isn`t it?  Bless your hart.  As for housing, there are plenty of off-campus spots available, please look at the Ole Miss website, there is lots of valuable information on there.  I have included some interesting facts for you also.

The University houses the largest blues music archive in the United States.
The school grows the only US government endorsed cannabis. The National Institute on Drug Abuse ( (NIDA) contracts to the University the production of cannabis for the use in the few approved research studies on the plant as well as for distribution to the eight surviving medical cannabis patients grandfathered into the Compassionate Use Program (established in 1975 and cancelled in February 1992).

University of Mississippi Medical Center surgeons performed the world's first lung transplant in man and transplanted the heart of a chimpanzee - man's closest genetic relation - into the chest of a dying man.

William Faulkner's estate, Rowan Oak, is owned by the University. The town surrounding the campus is said to have inspired Faulkner and his imaginary Yoknapatawpha County

There is a valid distinction between The University and Ole Miss even though the separate threads are closely interwoven.

The University is buildings, trees and people. Ole Miss is mood, emotion and personality. One is physical, and the other is spiritual. One is tangible and the other intangible.

The University is respected, but Ole Miss is loved. The University gives a diploma and regretfully terminates tenure, but one never graduates from Ole Miss.

Good luck to you, Chicago!
